THE WRECKED VESSEL. - The Vessel, portions of the wreck and of the freight of which have recently come ashore on the coast of lake Ontario, in this county, is ascertained to have been the schooner BRITANNIA, one hundred tons burthen, of Hamilton, U.C. She was owned by the firm of Calvin, Cook & Counter and T. Dodge & Co. of Kingston, and freighted with staves from Hamilton, for Montreal. It is supposed that all on board, five or six persons, perished with the vessel, which must have foundered in the gale of Sunday the 4th. inst. The deck of the vessel must have broken up, as staves known to have been deposited in the bottom of the hold, came ashore. - Rochester Democrat.
